    I saw two articulated bus on the 100 this morning. 31-811 and 33-829. Is it common to see artics in a line with 30min frequency?

    Modifying a page title

    To put you in context, the AMT was abolished to make place for a new agency, exo. I don't think we should rename the old AMT page because there is already an exo page. For example, the STM have it's page and his predecessor too (STCUM, CTCUM, ...). The fleet that has been transferred to the new agency has been renamed, eg: Société de transport de Montréal 21-202 to 21-275. What do you think?

    Société de transport de Montréal

    On 485 at Terminus Dorval there is a new announcement. The stop name is now "Terminus Dorval" and it also says "Cet arrêt dessert la gare Dorval d'exo via le tunnel piétonnier". In GTFS, it's still Gare Dorval. I don't know if it's the same case for all lines going through Terminus Dorval.
  5. The exo solo card is now avaible! Replacing the old one, with a way better scheme in my opinion, it is now available in 8 colors. Unfortunately, there are still rare. exo won't tell me where to find one! At Gare Centrale and Lucien-L'Allier, there are not avaible yet (as of monday).

    Hi, Can you rename the following pages: Agence métropolitaine de transport Vaudreuil—Hudson Line to exo1 - Vaudreuil-Hudson line Agence métropolitaine de transport Blainville—Saint-Jerome Line to exo2 - Saint-Jérôme line Agence métropolitaine de transport Mont-Saint-Hilaire Line to exo3 - Mont-Saint-Hilaire line Agence métropolitaine de transport Candiac line to exo4 - Candiac line Agence métropolitaine de transport Mascouche Line to exo5 - Mascouche line Agence métropolitaine de transport Deux-Montagnes Line to exo6 - Deux-Montagnes line Agence métropolitaine de transport Terminus Centre-Ville to Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain Terminus Centre-Ville Agence métropolitaine de transport Terminus Longueuil to Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain Terminus Longeuil Agence métropolitaine de transport 1350-1369 to exo 1350-1369 Proposed renaming : Bombardier MR90 series to exo 400-487 (as exo is the only operator of the MR-90, this new name would follow the naming convention) Agence métropolitaine de transport series VII bilevel cars to exo 2000-2037 (naming convention) Thanks!

    Roxboro now has a toilet only for bus drivers!
  8. exo6 - Deux-Montagnes is a must. Being the only electric commuter line in Canada (maybe the only heavy electrified train line?), You can't miss it. It also pass through the Mount-Royal tunnel wich is really nice. The exo2 - Saint-Jérôme line is also nice with some really nice scenery at the end. exo5 - Mascouche have a power transition at Ahunstic station wich is also worth checking. Don't buy an OPUS card only for this. It will cost 16$ (I think) and a solo card will be enough. I am taking the train two times a day for the last 6 months and no check so far. Inspectors are there, but not for validation purposes. As @webfil said, no stored-value. You can only put 4 types of tickets/passes at the time. You can also use OPUS in Quebec City with the RTC and STLévis.
  9. Welcome aboard! On which lines are you planning to go? The OPUS system is quite complicated. Two years ago, I had a day off and decided to discover our rail system. I did all the lines expect exo3 (Mont-Saint-Hilaire) and Hudson station. If you would like my schedule, send me a PM and I'll give it to you. For this trip, I used my OPUS card with 6 zone 6 tickets. It was quite difficult because sometimes the 120 minutes runs out and you are on a train. After talking with AMT customer service, he told me that I can try to validate the next ticket when the previous one is still valid, but the machine may say no. He told me "we don't really know what the validators do in that case. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't". But if you ever get checked by an inspector, you can explain your situation and should not have a problem. Have fun!
  10. I hope they will! Anyway at the time they signed the contract, they knew that the AMT would be replaced by the RTM so they probably added a clause to put a new livery on the cars.
  11. I noticed that there was no thread on the ARTM. I created this thread to be able to follow the changes in public transport by the ARTM. Let's talk mobility - Part 1 : Discover Today, the Authority launched a microsite to introduce mobility in the region for public consultations to be held from June 2019. They present different aspects of the planning and financing of mobility. There are also small surveys. The ARTM will have to present its first strategic development plan (PSD - Plan stratégique de développement) by 2020 and hope to collect the opinion of citizens to better guide its plan, using this website. Phase 2 will be Contribute, 3 will be Taking action. talkmobility.quebec - parlonsmobilite.quebec

    Kudos to all bus driver today. The snow make buses run slow and late, but at least we get to our destination! I got on 22-347 on the 205. The bus did come 6 minutes late at the train station, but when I got off, I saw that he was actually 34 minutes late! He was supposed to do the departure before mine! And he didn't take a break. 👋 for this awesome driver!

    If you talk about more data (like train speed), I will add those. However if you talk about buses sectors, some have the "SAEIV" system which offers realtime (like exo Laurentides). Currently, only Chrono has access to the real time feed, so we will have to wait. RTL have the same situation, were infrastructure is there but data is not public (yet).

    Unfortunately, my development computer broke down and I have to wait for replacement parts to be up and running again. I'm not even sure what is the problem so it could take time! In the meantime, I would like to plan the future releases. What would you like to see?

    My guess is the REM. The 747 will be in service for maximum 5 years so maximum 1/3 of a bus lifespan. I guess they don't want to repaint these buses!
